Kristi was awesome!! She was always responsive and to the point. With such little set up time at our venue, Kristi made it work with our schedule. The wedding turned out perfectly and she's a trooper! While we were on the last bits of our budget to make it work with her, she was well- worth it. We would highly recommend her to anyone in the DC, MD, VA area.

Kristi pretty much saved my sanity. I originally hired Kristi for her most basic Blush package. I thought I had all the rest of the details handled. And then, a week before the wedding, I found myself a week late on getting the DJ a schedule, without a wedding ceremony plan or program, and out of time. I emailed Kristi while she was on vacation, asking if I could purchase some sanity from her by way of a package upgrade, and she swooped in and saved the day. She not only took care of plotting out the schedules for my family and my vendors, but also helped me cover a ton of last-minute logistics. And that's not all. Kristi also transported all our wedding wine from our house to our venue (and the leftovers back home after the wedding). She gave us some excellent vendor recommendations throughout the planning process. She was generally a nice, calming, and very helpful presence. And she was a much more affordable day-of coordinator than most people around DC. She did a great job.

The coordinator was on top of all details and clarified some where both mother of the bride and matron of honor had both agreed to take care of. The reception went off smoothly and everyone had a good time.

We hired Kristi from Glow as our 'Month End' coordinator.
At first, we didn't get the warm and fuzzy w/ Kristi, however, all I can say is that she saved our day! Without her, it would have been extremely challenging.

Six weeks prior to our wedding, it was very stressful. As we approached our date, Kristi kicked in and reminded us how much we had forgotten. She is very on-point and did an excellent job with all of the minutia and nailed every last detail. Glow made our day magical, the entire event ran smoothly, on time and our guests were extremely happy. As the bride and groom, we were thrilled with her service :)

We would have no hesitation in recommending Kristi and if we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't choose anyone else!

Thank you Kristi x

I recently used GLOW Wedding and Events to coordinate my wedding on the day of. I was married at a newer venue that doesn't have an onsite coordinator, so requires you to bring one in. This is not something we originally budgeted for so it threw us for a loop. I was so thankful when I found GLOW, they were the best priced company in the area.

We had Tammy as our coordinator and she was amazing. From the start,Tammy was always very attentive and responsive in her emails and answers. It was very easy to work with her and she left no detail and question unattended or unanswered. When I requested a change, she openly accepted it or carefully explained why it couldn't be changed. She was very helpful in running rehearsal, she dealt with herding nearly 30 wedding party attendants around to their places. I commend her for being able to organize such a large wedding party.

On the day of, she came by the hotel to pick up several personal items and transport them all to the venue. When we got to the venue for pictures she had already begun setting things up and helped organize the group for pictures and then let the photographer take over. She made sure to keep us on schedule and make sure we knew if we were falling behind. When we needed someone for pictures, she ran around to find them. She made sure I was always taken care of with water or a drink, even before things started. The night was pretty much flawless in my eyes, everything I requested and provided my self for decorations was set up as I had asked. If there were any issues or problems, I didn't know and still don't know about them so to me it was a perfect night and I truly thank Tammy for that. My husband and dad (the one who paid!) and I all agree that paying for a coordinator, specifically Tammy, was the most well spent money in the budget!

We worked with Kristi for Day of Coordination for our March wedding. She was really great to work with -- she was very detail oriented, incredibly organized, and a very calming presence both prior to and during the wedding. She was on top of every detail -- she sent us lists of questions, reviewed every document and plan that we had, and on the day of the wedding, we could relax knowing that she was taking care of everything. She was flexible and able to work with us even when we hit minor snags - for example when our caterer didn't show up for our walkthrough because they had mistaken the date, she walked through the space with us, helped us think through all the details, and drafted a list of questions to confirm with the caterer when we were finally able to meet with them. We were also hit by a snowstorm two days before the wedding, and on the exact day we had intended to deliver the stuff for the wedding (placecards, favors, candles etc) we were unable to drive out to Kristi. In order to make things easier for us, she drove out to the hotel where we were staying on the morning of the wedding, and picked everything up (it ended up being a lot of boxes, requiring several trips up and downstairs).
Finally, our wedding was a traditional Orthodox Jewish wedding, and had a lot of intricate details. Kristi knew the ins and outs of a Jewish wedding, and was able to help us visualize how it would work within the space that we were using.
Based on our experiences, I would highly recommend that you contact and use Glow Weddings and Events!

Kristi with Glow Weddings and Events was just fantastic for the Day of Planning services I hired her for. She went above and beyond what I expected from her at every step of the way. I was immediately impressed at the extensive planning document filled with questions she had, many I had not thought of! She helped me get across the planning finish line with her transition in the weeks leading up to the wedding. The day of she was prompt and immediately took charge. She handled all the details of the day, including some decorations I needed set up in the venue. But she really went above and beyond by packing up boxes of items at the end of the reception and returning them to our suite at the hotel so we could continue celebrating with our friends. To not have to have my mom do this or to worry about it myself was such a relief. She must have made several trips up to our room so it was no quick job and really was more than we could have expected.

She was exactly what we wanted for the day of to ensure we didn't have to worry about the little details and could just enjoy ourselves. I would recommend her for your wedding in an instant.

It was such a relief to have Glow Weddings & Events coordinate our reception. We are so glad we had them to take care of so many little details we didn't even really think of until weeks before (that added up to a lot in the end)! We hired Kristi Hartig to coordinate our reception at Top of the Town because there were some logistical and timing challenges our venue presented to us. Since the venue we chose does not provide all those "little" extras and we did a lot of DIY, we were able to drop off everything - our seating chart, votive candles, linens, favors, misc. decor, etc. - with Kristi a few days before the wedding so she could take all of it to the reception for us when the vendors were allowed in (while we were in the middle of our ceremony at the church). She also helped set up some things our caterer was worried they wouldn't have time to do - all the chair sashes especially. Kristi kept us on time throughout the event AND brought leftover items to our hotel block for us so we could have everything in the morning. Our venue was beautiful but we found it difficult to work with their strict rules at times and Kristi took over all those worries for us. We had debated spending the extra money to hire a Reception Coordinator but we are SO glad we did. Kristi was worth every penny! Thanks for all of your hard work, Kristi!

I hired Glow to do day-of-coordination for my wedding. Kristi and Glow Events did an amazing job coordinating the day of my wedding, but also helped to run my rehearsal and were instrumental throughout the entire planning process with vendor recommendations and random planning questions.

Our wedding was a very DIY event and involved a lot of moving parts. Kristi and her assistant took care of everything the day of the event and allowed me to not have to worry about a thing. Everything looked beautiful and reflected what I had in mind for our wedding. Kristi even showed up earlier than normal to set-up for my event to ensure that everything would be just right.

Kristi is very organized and thorough. A month prior to the wedding, she sent me a very exhaustive planning question list. While it took a long time to go through, it helped ensure that Kristi knew every detail for our day and was able to execute an event that reflected exactly what my husband and I wanted.

I would definitely recommend Glow events to anyone looking for day-of-coordination. They are very affordable for the area and I suspect they will (and should) soon raise their rates.

If it weren't for GLOW Wedding & Events, and Kristi Hartig in particular, I honestly don't think I could have survived my wedding. Her professionalism and experience were evident at every step of the process-- consistent calm, attention to detail, responsiveness, superior organizational skills, warmth and positivity--and during the final month, and especially the day of, I was literally stunned by how poised, relaxed, and effective she was.

In my work life, I also organize huge events with many moving pieces, and no matter how effectively I prepare, I am a MASSIVE stress case the day of the event. Not so with Kristi--our wedding day was a smashing success, every single thing came off without a hitch (I seriously can't remember putting out a single fire) , my wife and I were serene, untroubled, and happy, and the middle of it all, despite a thousand time-sensitive demands of which we were blissfully unaware, Kristi was model of calm in the eye of our wedding hurricane.

Thanks to Kristi Hartig and GLOW events, my wife and I survived the planning experience, thrived on our wedding day, and can happily cherish the memory of a perfect, blissful day with all of our favorite people in the world. To my mind, this is how a wedding should be, and it seems GLOW Events is in the business of making that happy ending the norm for all of their lucky clients. Cheers to GLOW!
